The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warnings for south-central and central Pima County Monday evening, which will stay in effect until 8:15, and 10:15 p.m. respectively.
A flash flood watch has also been issued for western Pima County, including the Tucson Metro area, the Tohon O'odham Nation, Marana, Oracle, Green Valley, Vail and Summerhaven.
The Flash flood watch is in effect through 11 a.m. Tuesday. Heavy rainfall will result in an increased risk of flash flooding. 1 to 2 inches are expected with any thunderstorms during this time, the agency said.
A flash flood warning means runoff from heavy rains will cause flooding of small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses, as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots. If flash flooding is observed, act quickly and head to higher ground.
A flash flood watch means that conditions are favorable for widespread flash flooding to develop.
